World Pulse in Pakistan

Sister Zeph
Posted November 7, 2019 from Pakistan

I am an Educationist, Human rights activist, speaker and writer. I have always been feeling myself unfit in my society, I never had a friend, as a child, I would have weird questions to ask from my elders and my teachers in those times there was no internet in Pakistan so no one could Google my questions.

I did not have playmates. I would spend most of my time in doing child-labor and after this I would keep thinking alone about so many things.

Then I started writing my thoughts, I would write stories, there was no one around me who would like to read them so I started keeping them safe in a big box. I kept writing for almost 10 years and one day someone destroyed all those notebooks. I do not know who did it in my family; I do not want to know even because whoever destroyed them, did not know that it was a collection of my thoughts.

I know how it feels in our heart, brain and chest. Like something has blocked out there when you find no one to understand you, but you are surrounded by the people who make fun of you because they do not know how to help you.

But in 2013 I joined World Pulse, for the first time I was heard, I was appreciated, I was admired, I was accepted, I was respected, I was given love and value. Here my thoughts were not destroyed, but they were promoted. Women from all over the world accepted me the way I am, first time I realized I am not weird I am just different and I am born to make a difference in life of so many women.

I belong to a society where most women are living the same life as I have been living because they have no say in family matters or in anything. They have to follow their fate written by men of the family.

Therefor it had been my dream to introduce as many women to World Pulse as possible. Thanks to  World Pulse to give me this honor to be a World Pulse Ambassador because this opportunity is helping me to make this dream true.

But problem is that every second woman in Pakistan is illiterate, those who get a chance to go to school rarely get a chance to dream big because even in school they are being told to be good wives and good daughters.(Obey the rules of your family no matter what)

Therefore, when I became World Pulse Ambassador I decided to work in four different ways.

First of all to teach my teachers about World Pulse so they can teach our students about this in our school where 200 students are getting free education so I started giving training to our teachers about World Pulse two of them  immediately (Reena and Kanwal Javed) became World Pulse members

Second was to bring the message of World Pulse to University students because they have access to internet and they know how to use it. So I would like to thank the Gift University of Pakistan that allowed me to teach their students(Male and Female) about World Pulse and leadership

My third plan is to let Pakistan know more about World Pulse through digital and print media.

I am working on all these three ideas and It is just a beginning because World Pulse has a potential to transform each life in the world and we have to give access to each women to the World Pulse so they know their value, their skills and worth. So women can dare to dream big and do not feel alone in their journey of equality

Hello Dear Sister Zeph,

Thanks so much for sharing this heartfelt tribute to World Pulse. I simply can't believe you didn't have any friends... wow:-( How sad. I would've been your friend. Here's to the oddballs, the changemakers... how does it go... well, you get the idea. And, I had no idea you weren't already an Ambassador before this last term. Thank goodness you think differently, that you're empowering so many girls and women, that you're paving a way for a better future for them there, and also that you're teaching so many boys to respect and honor women, too. Stay blessed, dear, and please continue to always share all your gifts, too. It's so needed:-)

Much love and hugs to you, love!

Dear Zeph, you are the second amazing Pakistanis Female Leader I have met this year. And the common thing I find is a woman who wants to challenge the status quo to offer a platform for other girls in a community that has vehemently kept her girls and women behind. I salute your courage and I am amazed by what you are upto. You are a real WP ambassador and I look forward to reding about your amazing work. Kudos to you Sister!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear Sister Zeph,
From the very first story I read about you, your journey, your amazing work as you built up from teaching girls in your backyard to now having a school full of learning, art, dance despite the dangers, you continue to inspire me. It is so often your story that I tell people wanting to understand what we have here within World Pulse. I celebrate the giant leaps forward you are making, dear sister and World Pulse Ambassador.
Lots of love,

Dear sister Zeph
Let me congratulate and wish you the very best for your plannings further. You are so true that women can dare to dream big and not alone in their journey of equality. It feels sad to know about your childhood and the loneliness but if you see how many global sisters are with you currently, who are truly encouraged by your work/initiatives. I loved the way you put your aim/vision so clearly to reach out to the big mass. You are so strategic and organized too. I wish you again for achieving the success, Please keep your good work and inspiring to the world.

I would like to welcome Reena and Kanwal in World Pulse family,
Love and regards,
anjana

Proud of you Sister Zeph. I can relate to it. I had no friends back in University days just because I asked a lot of questions from the teacher and they didn't liked that. Even I was bullied many times. I Cried a lot of times after coming to home but that makes me strong. I didn't sit at home inspite of all this mess I continued my studies, Got the Gold Medal and that was the bigger slap on the faces of those who bullied me, pushed me down and even left me alone in my difficult times. Yes since 2018, when I came to know about WP community I am more confident person to share my stories here and feel celebrated. Thank you WP for connecting wonderful, amazing ladies all together from all parts of the world. Hugs to the great team of sisters! and again I am proud of you sister Zeph.
